The Giants did not need Brian Wilson at full gallop in the ninth inning Sunday. For the first time in nine games, their horses in the lineup left them wanting.
The Giants’ four-plus scoring streak ended in a 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates at AT&T Park. Kevin Correia gave up his only run on a ground out and the Giants’ heretofore clutch bats were 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position.
They stranded seven runners over the final four innings.
The offensive support wasn’t there for Ryan Vogelsong, who came off the disabled list and pitched well in his 2012 debut while holding the Pirates to two runs in 6 1/3 innings.
The Giants still took two of three in the series.
